Google Maps LaunchedAnother day, another rocking Google service. Google Maps is now launched and is easily a better mouse trap vs. the withering no innovation competition of Mapquest and Yahoo Maps.
It has a better user interface, layout, and features. They include real-time zooming, ability to click and drag maps, ability to use the keyboard to move around, driving directions, traffic conditions, and instant location of businesses in the area. This has the potential to be a nice gold mine with local advertising and of course the ever-present AdSense advertising. Enough of me blabbering, try it yourself.
